Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I am not positive and am having the same problem. I am reading that you might need to add the file in the android developer market after uploading the apk but I am as lost as you.

Thank you. I have read this and it is very helpful. I also like this forum post https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?34604-for-up-to-50-MB-apk&highlight=.obb+files

I have made an app and I am not sure if I need to include the obb file? I should know this but I am not a programmer at all. My .Obb file is about 300mgb but when I install it on my phone via the bat file it only shows on the phone as 65mgb so I am not sure if that obb file is needed or not.

I never played with obb file maybe it have few versions of things and installs only part of it that is needed for your device.

I submitted the app to the app store without it and will see if it runs without it. I will post if it does or not in case anyone wants to know. Thanks for the help.

I think its needed since apk can only hold 50MB

Definitely needed. I thought it was working once I downloaded it from the store but I realized I have all the files from when I tested it earlier. Any other android device does not work. I am going to start from scratch and remove it completely. I made some mistakes that I am not able to correct at this time. Thanks and best of luck.

Upload your apk and when it finishes in the same page you will see a "plus" button where you can add your "expansion file" meaning your .obb file
